FILWEL Head Office / Hofu Plant

Facing the tranquil Seto Inland Sea and roughly in the center of Yamaguchi Prefecture, Hofu is a historic city that has prospered since ancient times as the provincial capital of Suo Province. Our base of operations is located in the temple town of Hofu Tenmangu Shrine, one of the Three Great Tenjins (shrines dedicated to the deity Tenjin) of Japan. The high-precision, high-quality products shipped from this site are manufactured on efficient production lines that produce all items from primary materials to finished products and operate based on meticulous end-to-end production management, which is why they are highly acclaimed by customers both in Japan and overseas. FILWEL offers a total manufacturing base, gathering the best in each field to maintain and improve quality to meet the demands of precision equipment manufacturing, ensure stable and safe production, and master FILWEL’s proven production technologies.



Commitment to Integrated Production

In addition to developing products, we have established a production system at our own site that covers all processes from the production of primary materials to the completion of the final product. This allows us to respond quickly to changing technical requirements.

For example, in the case of precision polishing pads, we offer our customers an integrated production system extending over many processes, such as non-woven fabric manufacturing, resin impregnation, nap layer formation, double-sided adhesive tape processing, size cutting, grooving, and slurry hole cutting. We also implement thorough management of each process to maintain the highest possible standards in terms of both technology and quality.

Robust Quality Control and Environmental Management Systems

We aim to satisfy our customers by implementing stable production and providing high-quality products. This is achieved through continuous improvement of both the quality and environment aspects of our manufacturing system.

Our fine chemical materials are of the high quality demanded by our customers, and we deliver them through our customer-oriented quality control system and quality inspection process. In recent years, voices have been calling for environmental protection on a global scale. Conscious of the fact that we are a company living in an age of renewed environmental awareness, we have been working to achieve a sustainable society through activities such as the secure management of chemical substances and energy-saving initiatives.
